Grants fund community-engaged learning curricula
By Ashlee McGandy

The Office of Engagement Initiatives (OEI) recently awarded Engaged Curriculum Grants to 19 teams of faculty and community partners that are developing community-engaged learning courses, majors and minors across the university.

This year’s funded projects involve 52 Cornell faculty and staff from 36 departments and 11 schools and colleges. Community partners come from seven countries; 14 projects are based in New York state.

“OEI’s main objective is to make high-quality community-engaged learning accessible to every Cornell undergraduate student,” said Anna Sims Bartel, associate director of community-engaged curricula and practice in OEI. “A great way to expand that reach is by increasing the opportunities students have to engage with communities as part of their academic studies. We’re excited to work with this year’s grantees as they plan and develop new curricula and continue to refine what they already offer.”
